We fund research and provide support to improve blood cancer patients' lives



Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research remains the only national research charity focusing on leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma in both children and adults. Since they began in 1960 they have been able to make significant advances in both treatments and survival rates. However, we need to improve survival rates even further and ensure that treatments become less aggressive with fewer long-term side effects; your support of our work will really help to ensure the future of this research.

"Some say Usain Bolt's world record that stands at 9.58 is the most impressive feat in athletics history but the members of Sheffield University Orienteering Club (ShUOC) like to push the boundaries of human endevour beyond that previously thought possible.

This year we will attempt to go where no camel has gone before and break the world record for the fastest two person pantomime fancy dress costume to ever run a half marathon in the 4 billion year history of planet earth. 

We hope to have a fleet of camels and other exotic animals on the start line - recent reports suggest a tiger will be in attendence. 

Our efforts will be focussed on raising money for Leukamia and Lymphoma research and Unicef."
